Crochet or Knit the Nymphaea Shawl

Nymphaea Fall Shawl Retreat (November 2018)
Join Laurinda Reddig and Michele Berstein to Crochet OR Knit this gorgeous shawl. The asymmetrical Nymphaea Shawl will help you learn about working with gradients yarns, changing colors, blocking, and adding beads and edgings to your knit or crocheted lace. The retreat will include hand-dyed gradient as well as a gradient bead set from Bead Biz. Each year we choose a new Shawl designed by Laurinda to make for the fall shawl retreat. This year's shawl was a collaboration with knitwear designer Michele Bernstein of PDXKnitterati and Bead Biz and we are excited to team up to teach crocheters and knitters to make both versions!
